About

Who We Are

The significance of cats in our lives has shaped the philosophy by which we operate the Cat Care Clinic. Since we saw our first patient in 1987, we have promoted the bond that exists between people and their cats.  We emphasize prevention and give every client the time they deserve and answer all their questions.

Our devotion to cats drives our doctors to receive over 150 hours of continuing education every year exclusively in feline medicine, dentistry, surgery, and behavior. Our medical knowledge is complimented by our genuine compassion for each cat and the people who care for them. Our clients frequently tell us that our knowledge and caring has increased their cat’s lifespan by years.

Our accreditation by AAHA, the American Animal Hospital Association, signifies that we uphold a promise to our clients, our staff, and ourselves that we will always work to maintain the highest level of excellence in veterinary practice. Even though compliance with AAHA standards is strictly a voluntary process, we could not imagine running Cat Care Clinic any other way. To become and remain AAHA accredited, we must meet a set of 900 strict standards, which cover every aspect of running a veterinary hospital, every policy we have implemented, and every procedure we perform. These standards were developed to act as a benchmark to measure excellence in veterinary medicine. Only 13-15% of all veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada are currently AAHA accredited. Yes, we are proud!

We are also proud to be certified as a Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners at the Gold Status. This certification reflects our consideration of the unique needs that cats have, the care we take in handling our feline patients, the attitude and knowledge of our staff, and the comfort and concern we show for cats and their people.

Cat Care Clinic makes a considerable investment in educating our clients, ourselves, and others in the community about the special needs of cats, because we believe knowledge is key to understanding. We know that people take care of cats, and cats return our love, which improves our physical and mental well-being. We would be honored to work with you and your feline companion.

What our clients say

From my earliest practice days in Madison (1988), Cat Care Clinic has always been a leader in feline medicine.  Cats and their people are special, and deserve the dedicated cat environment you will find at Cat Care Clinic.  Dr. Ilona Rodan started the only cat specific practice in the region, and now is nationally recognized and consulted for her efforts.  I have enjoyed working for her and the dedicated Cat Care staff.  She has recently handed the torch to Dr. Kat Luther, so perfectly named for the role!  I have known and respected Kat for her entire career, including her time working with me providing emergency and critical care.  Your kitties will benefit from the experience, expertise and feline friendly environment found at Cat Care Clinic.

Brothers Uncle Buns and Fuego Have been going to the Cat Care Clinic for years. They’ve always received nothing but the most thoughtful and attentive care. The staff works with you to figure out the best, most reasonable course of treatment for any issue.  It is very comforting to to know that the entire staff truly understands these strange and wonderful beings.

Everyone at the CCC is extremely friendly, very caring, and gentle. You can tell that everyone is passionate about what they do and show a genuine concern and understanding for not only what our precious fur babies are going through, but also what we as “parents” are/have been going through. I will definitely send friends your way to get care for their babies.

I wish I brought Zoe Cat Fabulous to you guys in the first place. Thank you for going above and beyond. You were the first out of three vets we took Zoe to that cared enough to do an actual biopsy of the mass growing on her left side. Though, now the cancer has advanced to the point where I may have to let her go, I now know where I will be bringing my future furry besties from here on out. Thank you for the time you’ve spent caring for Zoe. She will always be Ms. Fabulous.

After an annual exam at another clinic went seriously wrong, a family member strongly suggested I call Cat Care Clinic. Upon calling, the wonderful staff took the time to ask questions, address my concerns, and scheduled a prompt appointment for my “princess” Jasmine. At the appointment, I was comforted by a concerned staff, and the suggestion I stay with Jasmine during her exam. Impressed by the high level of care Jasmine received, I now trust Cat Care Clinic to care for “the boys” Buddy and Biaggi.

Thank you to Dr. Bunger for treating Jasmine back to health. And, thanks to Rachel for her regular calls, helpful tips, and for reminding me to be patient; Rachel truly granted me some peace of mind during Jasmine’s recovery.

I’ve taken all of my cats to this clinic when I lived in Madison and I was very happy with the service and care that my cats received.

Dr. Illona Rodan was their vet and she is fantastic!  I only wish I could find a human doc that had such a great bedside manner.  She is just a natural handling cats and she really gives you a good amount of time to ask questions.  One of my cats had cancer and Dr. Rodan was very understanding about my decision to treat the pain and keep her comfortable until it was time to euthanize her (I couldn’t afford to go the route of treating the cancer).  Ultimately, my cat lived for quite awhile and because the cost of her pains meds and such was building up, Dr. Rodan opted to subsidize some of my expenses with money from a donation fund.  It was very helpful and as a result, I was able to afford to keep my cat around until it was obvious that she was ready to pass on.  Dr. Rodan was very kind, gentle and respectful when it came time to euthanize my cat.  She really made a painful experience a bit more bearable.
